Micro Focus Fortify on Demand Review

Has the ability to have related features upgraded on the tools but the tool suffers from latency

What is most valuable?

What is most useful is how you can have related features upgraded on the tools. The tools themselves have details for the code as well, where the issues have been flagged, and all the vulnerabilities are there, in one place.

What needs improvement?

The solution has some problems with latency. Sometimes it takes a while to respond. This issue should be addressed.

They should improve the data path where the issue has been flagged. They can improve the flow module details. If you can understand from the data flow or data path what is happening, you can better understand what the issue is.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is okay in terms of scalability. I'm still not really familiar with the tool, and I'm still learning from it. So far, I think it has a good ability to scale.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is okay. They have a platform that you can create tickets on. Once you raise a ticket, support is quick to help you. 

If they wanted to improve technical support they could offer meetings with the developer or security team.

How was the initial setup?

It's a cloud-based solution, so there was no installation involved.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model of the solution.

Whether or not you decide to implement the solution depends on the use case. It depends on if the user has a big application or multiple lines of code which need to be scanned. New users need to do POC so they can investigate if this tool fits in their company or their enterprise before they begin implementation. Everyone should do a comparison before implementing or doing the rollout of any security tool.

I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
